Editorial Reviews

 

From the Publisher

-Begins with the assumption that no one is aware of an attack and, through descriptions and charts, makes healthcare providers more sensitive to the possibility of an attack.
-There is use of a syndromic cross reference, which allows readers to look up suspicious symptoms presented by unexpected clusters of patients.
